Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres Line Movement

Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres Prediction

The Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres will take place from American Family Field on Sunday afternoon. The Padres have won the first two games of this three-game set, and the Brewers will look to bounce back with a win today to salvage the series.

The Padres have been one of the best teams in all of baseball this season despite their best player being out of the lineup, Fernando Tatis Jr. Tatis will return this season, but the Padres need to keep afloat until then. They have done more than that behind some great starting pitching, and their bullpen has been great.

The Padres have won these first two games by shutting down this Brewers offense. The Brewers have been shut out for the first two games of this series. They will look to turn that around today, but it will not be an easy task. They will face Mike Clevinger in this game. Clevinger is one of the better arms that no one really talks about. He had Cy young type of stuff in Cleveland and then had to deal with multiple significant injuries. He is back this season and looks good as ever. The Brewers will oppose Clevinger with southpaw Eric Lauer who is having the best year of his career. 

I am backing the Brewers on the moneyline today. I think it is odd that the Padres have shut out the Brewers and have the better arm on the mound today, but they are dogs. This line screams Brewers to me, and I love it today. This is a spot where everyone will fade them due to being shut out the last two days, but that is not how gambling works.

I think they can grind out at-bats today and get a few runs on the board early. Eric Lauer has arguably been the best pitcher for the Brewers on a loaded staff. I think Lauer can hold down this Padres lineup that is limited outside of a couple of hitters. I like the bounce-back spot for the Brew Crew today!
